The vibrant capital of Thailand, the most visited city in the world, is an enchanting and fascinating mix of ancient and modern.
It is best known for its ornate temples, its lively street life and fantastic food. Opulent shrines seem to appear around every corner; marvel at the number and grandiosity of Buddhist temples in the city, and visit the spectacular former home of the Thai King, the Grand Palace.
Take a tuk-tuk through the bustling streets of Chinatown, or ride a long-tail boat between colourful floating markets or along the riverside. Bangkok is rightly famous for its food, topping surveys as the best city to visit for gourmets. Gastronomically it will delight on all levels, whether satay, noodles or sticky rice from the aromatic and bustling street stalls or steamed crab and spicy lobster soup at an elegant riverside restaurant with sunset views.
